As you arrive at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the stunning sleek, black lines of Britain's first iron-hulled, armoured warship, take your breath away.

Warrior, launched in 1860, was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day and had a profound effect on naval architecture. Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet within a few years she was obsolete.

Restored and back at home in Portsmouth, Warrior now serves as a ship museum, monument, visitor attraction, private venue and more. Open all year round, we invite you to experience her for yourself.

Open daily from 10.00am except 24th, 25th & 26th December

This place is VAST!!!! Some of it was closed off for maintenance work so didn't actually see all of it. Highly recommend this for the history alone.

HMS WARRIOR is part of the Historic Dockyard in Portsmouth and I would recommend that you buy the annual pass. This provides excellent value for money as it gives you unlimited visits all year round. This was an excellent morning. The ship is fascinating, being the first iron clad warship combining steam and sail. I was on board for a... More

We loved looking around this ship. Very enthusiastic volunteer (?) gave us so much information about the ships company we were over thirty minutes just by the galley. Met this gentleman again down in the boiler room. My goodness me so much more information that I never picked up on our previous visits. Really enriched our visit.

The Warrior is immaculate. Interesting to have a walk around the old defense ship. If you like maritime history, you'll probably love this.

We love going on this kind of a visit. It is good for children too and there are usually people around to answer questions. The ship is being done up at the moment as there is a lot of rotten wood to replace between 2 layers of metal. It is fun going up and down the narrow staircases and seeing... More
